Grover's Flute

I often feel like this. You just don't understand a certain group's customs and you think they're picking on you, but it's just their way.

Sound of Ceres Autumn Observatory Tour

My band, Sound of Ceres, is about to do a little tour. I've really been enjoying this project. I've never really enjoyed doing music live. I love working on music in the studio but playing live has never been fun for me. I'm not really a very talented musician, I mostly consider myself a song writer and sound maker. So, performing "live" has always seemed like I'm walking on a tight rope ("can he do it?").

However performing live visuals really suits me. Maybe because I come from a puppetry background. It feels like infinite possibilities and experimentation... there are no "wrong" notes. The photos below are from our show last month at Webster Hall opening for Peter Bjorn & John. Since then I've moved away from liquid light and more towards lasers, holograms, fiber optics and other forms of light magic. If we're playing near you please come by, see the show and say hi!

National Geographic - The Invisible World (1979) Crystallization Process Close Up

This close up film of the crystallization process is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I mean, this is a real film of a physical process. Not an animation! 

The whole film is pretty amazing, but it does have some scary moments (there are as many creatures living on your body as there are people on earth!).
